Watch Skyrim Live Action Short, “Shattered Shield”
Those of you familiar with my work on Game Front know that I am not the biggest supporter of fan films. I’m often impressed by certain technical achievements, but generally, these films are constrained both by a lack of budget and an almost slavish devotion to the property being fanned that interferes with original content.
Granted, you cannot judge fan films on the same standard you judge professional works, so with that in mind, I’m mostly positive about “Shattered Shield,” a live action Skyrim short from Node. Yes, it has a lot of the problems fan films have, particularly the abysmal English accents. Seriously, most people cannot pull it off and adding nasal twang doesn’t cut it. Still, it’s enjoyable, so have a look for yourself.
